I have answered this before, but I think it got burried redface.gif

Anyway, I use CRU, with my ATI card. And the timings I use are the automatic LCD standard. I've also tried the LCD reduced, but had similar results.
Actually, tomorrow I will recieve the GTX 780, so I'll be able to 'overclock' using the nvidia driver (if that's what you mean with driver). Will post back tomorrow-ish if I still get image retention.

Another thing, I actually prefer the image on 96hz. This is obviously because I calibrated the monitor on 96hz, but switching between color profiles and refresh rates when switching between gaming-non gaming is a drag! I hope the nvidia drivers will come through for me!

I'm also pleasantly surprised by the bezel quality of Qnix. It actually looks quite robust and fancy.

Yeah people w/ CRU have been reporting it mostly.

As for the 96hz, the only change you need to do after increasing it is up the gamma by .8 per ever 15hz you increase for every 30hz increase its gamma by .16 and brightness by 2%

It's going to be different for every monitor. Best way to set it accurately is to use the image below and adjust like you said until both the circle and background blend together when you squint at it.

I'm in the market for a new gpu so your post had me rethinking as I am all set to get a 780.

Oh yeah, I've been trying to get pretty decent at the jet...Add me if you want to play sometime though..anyone else also - Gilly225

Has anyone tried doing custom resolution for say 1280x960?
Can you run even higher refresh rate for lower resolutions? Like 144Hz at that resolution or something?

EDIT: Just got 120Hz running perfect, Lagom Contrast and Gamma tests are nearly spot on aswell.
Thank you for that "Front Porch" reference smile.gif

haha, makes sense... Well, cheapest x-star right now is a tempered glass model for $280. I don't really want or need a tempered glass but it's cheaper than the regular matte version. Final question though.... So is it true that every tempered glass model has a matte panel underneath it? If so... then great! How many people have actually gotten glossy underneath there monitor?

Both the tempered's I got are matte underneath, confirmed by the seller than promised they were gloss AFTER I received them lol. Anyways they found 2 Normal Gloss panels in their warehouse and are going to ship them to me, if I like I'll return the 2 I have if not I'll keep 1 temperd and return the off color one.

Most are matte underneath, though some DO have gloss, as Stige pointed out.
